Absolute Vitality Inc., 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

Absolute Vitality Inc.  is a legal corporation that was established in 2010 by  Wyoming Corporate Services,  a business-incorporation specialized in setting up shelf companies. In 2012 Aids-3D purchased the company to use it for their latest project. The main purpose of Absolute Vitality Inc. is to employ a multi-pronged strategy of diversified balanced growth to offer collectors a low-beta (risk), high-alpha (reward) conceptual investment unmitigated by oppressive (EU) tax schemes, and the fickle tastes of the art market.

Absolute Vitality Inc.  conceives the artwork as a “special purpose vehicle”, a corporate entity set up to manage ownership of itself and its parts. After its launch at Neuer Aachener Kunstverein in September 2012 an initial offering of shares of the corporation occurred during SUNDAY art fair, London. Shareholders receive a unique certificate and the physical assets of the company will be transferred to the majority shareholder. In early 2013, a board and shareholder meeting will vote on proposals by invited peer artists and thinkers about the future activities of  Absolute Vitality Inc.

Beyonsense

 

Slavs and Tatars are proud to present Beyonsense, a look at the whitewashed story of the mystical in the modern, from Futurian Velimir Khlebnikov aka the Russian Dervish to Dan Flavin the Illuminationist, with their first solo exhibition in a United States museum. The newest installment of The Faculty of Susbtitution, S&T’s third cycle of work, Beyonsense takes its name fromзаум, or Khlebnikov’s transrational experiments with language, as the point of departure for a reading room, including the recreation of a Dan Flavin commission for a little-known DIA Sufi Mosque in downtown New York. The show, part of The Projects Series, is curated by Gretchen Wagner, Assistant Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books.

From A to B

 

“Time Is What Prevents Everything From Happening At Once”, (John Wheeler)

 

An end product is a static entity; it was dynamic in the process of its creation. While a logical approach to art will take you from A to B; your imagination can take you everywhere. Artists tend to mix the two and end up with an object that they will claim is finished.

If time is a measure of the interval between two events, then what happens between the two? How much of this transformative move in time are we allowed to observe when we glance at the end product? What is time and what is process? What is between A and B?

KHHHHHHH

 

In parallel to the 2012 Brno Biennial, Slavs and Tatars present Khhhhhhh: a reconsideration of pedagogy, sacred hospitality, and modernity via the perspective of a single pesky-to-pronounce phoneme.  The second solo show in their new cycle of work, Khhhhhhh offers a particularly rich insight into the sacred potential of language and the siege of history by the very vowels and consonants rolling off our tongues and scraping the back of our collective throats.

Publication:

On the occasion, Slavs and Tatars, with the Moravia Gallery and Mousse Publishing, will present Khhhhhhh, a collection of essays on such diverse subjects as Velimir Khlebnikov, the metaphyics of hovering, Hebrew Gematria, and mirrors.

Slavs and Tatars at the New Museum’s Triennial


 

For The Ungovernables, the 2012 Triennial at the New Museum, Slavs and Tatars present PrayWay. A collision of the sacred and the profane – the rahlé, the traditional book stand used for holy books, and the river-bed, vernacular seating areas used in tea-salons – PrayWay is part installation, part sculpture, part seating area, and all polemical platform.

Fractales – Hunting the Hidden Dimension


 

Mysteriously beautiful fractals, discovered by Benoit Mandelbrod, are shaking up the world of mathematics and deepening our understanding of nature through the notion of self-simularity and psychedelic imagery.

 

watch docu >here<

 

 

The Mandelbrot-Set has its place in complex dynamics, a field first investigated by the French mathematicians Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia at the beginning of the 20th century. The first pictures of this fractal were drawn in 1978 by Robert Brooks and Peter Matelski as part of a study of Kleinian groups. On 1 March 1980, at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center in upstate New York, Benoit Mandelbrot first saw a visualization of the set.

UV print in LED lightbox, 122 x 91,5 x 2 cm

 

 

ECOCORE aims to explore the camouflaged souls of ecology.

 

ECOCORE addresses the improper valuation given by hyper consumption to shared, finite, natural resources. Negative externalities born by public and subsidised lives are calling for a re-examination of the “good cause”.

 

ECOCORE recognises that ecology’s identity has been repressed or relegated to area’s where it ought not to be. Relying on prettiness as a tool to convey its’ ideas, ECOCORE strives to furtively edit ecology’s muddled identity and environmental awareness.

 

There are many new leading actors, decision makers, and partnerships that play increasingly important roles in what happens to the natural world. The proliferating complexity, immediacy, and ubiquity of environmental crises therefore demand novel and unusual human responses towards this new eco-governance.

 

ECOCORE II (The Dolphin Issue), includes Brazilian dolphins by Vincent Bevins, an essay by Giordano Bruno, an interview with Evo Morales, computational architecture, a photo-essay by Steven Meisel, polyamorous Mermaids, outdoor homos, anarcho-pauperism, biomorphic media theories, Franz Kafka, beautiful nature, Aldo Rossi, a horoscope, net-community milestones, and works from the artists Aids-3D, Marlie Mul, Cab Broskoski, and a bountiful fiction section curated by Christopher Glazek.

 

ECOCORE is edited by Alessandro Bava. ECOCORE III (The FO.od Issue) will come out in January 2012.
